So what's the verdict. Haven't gotten my update due to a sim card issue, but does Foxfi still work?
At this point foxfi isnt working on jellybean
sent from my vzw galaxy note 2
Foxfi does work with the S3 and note 2 running JB. It works on both of my S3's and my note 2. Will want to pay for the full version so you can use more than 30 mins at a time but is worth every penny of it.
My note 2 and S3's are stock and have never been rooted
Foxfi works fine on my SIII with JB.
You can also install flash player back on your S3 just by going to adobe flash website.
FoxFi works just fine on my GS3 with JB installed. Using it to post this update. I did end up paying for the application though so not sure if the 'free' version works or not.
The free version does work but for only 30 mins at a time. If that's all you need it for then the free version will be just fine
On the note two, foxfi turns on the hot spot feature, is this ok?

I have not gotten a bill for it. But I am pretty sure that you have to agree to verzions terms and conditions before they can charge you for it
It does that on s3, too and it's fine. No charges or anything. Don't worry about it
Are we sure no charges because I'm sorta nervous when the hot spot is activated.
I checked my bill last night and there was no charge on it so you should be fine
Saw this thread and thought I'd ask if anyone knows about this weird issue i'm having. FoxFi always worked perfectly for me. Now after the JB update, it does automatically turn on the mobile hotspot (which is fine cuz I actually pay for that, dumb I know). The thing is whenever I use the Mobile Hotspot app, my 4g will completely drop out almost every time I try to click a link or load a webpage or anything. Then when I stop doing anything, the 4g icon will reappear on my phone...then disappear again as soon as I try to do something on my laptop! Its really weird and super annoying. This never happened when I used foxfi. And now that its automatically activating mobile hotspot, my 4g drops constantly. Like it doesn't even switch to 3g, it actually disappears for a few seconds, then will reappear. Anyone ever heard of that or know how to fix this? Thanks. Sorry if this is kinda in the wrong thread.
On my razr maxx, when I turned the wifi on I would immediately lose signal strength as well.

I have never had a problem like that with my S3's note 2 or my razor maxx. How strong is your signal before you turn on Foxfi?
I tried turning on my hot spot and it informed me that i would have to subscribe to it. I'm going with its ok when fox turns it on when you activate it.
My 4g strength is always fine when i don't have mobile hotspot activated. It never drops out. I live in a big city so the signal is real good. 4g only drops out after I try to use mobile hotspot. I should mention that this same thing happened with my previous phone (droid charge) also. I'm hoping foxfi just updates their app, so it doesn't automatically activate Mobile Hotspot.. :/
It seems many people have found that FoxFi is working with JB. Have you tried it recently? I see that the Play store site still says it isn't working with JB, but based on this forum it seems that the play store may be wrong.
My experience with FoxFi after the JB update:
The Hotspot icon gets activated in the status bar, and a "click here to set up" appears.
i was able to surf using Chrome, but I was unable to use any apps that used internet (Dropbox, G+, Facebook). It was odd behavior. I did not purchase the full version, so I don't know if that is an additional limitation to separate me from my $7.
